Creamy Feta & Beef Strips

Creamy Feta and Beef Strips ~ Delicious, creamy pasta topping with mushrooms, red wine, cream ... #PastaDish #Dinner

I made this pasta dish the other night, making up the recipe as I was cooking.  Sometimes, these kind of dishes, which is made from what you have on hand, turns out delicious.  

The sauce was real creamy and for once I did not mix {cover} the meat in the sauce before serving.  I have to admit, I think it might have tasted even better, had I let the meat strips soak in the sauce beforehand.

We still enjoyed it, but the option is there - either layer it as I did - Pasta/Beef Strips/Sauce/Extra Feta OR add the Beef Strips back into the sauce for the last few minutes and then dish up.

Creamy Feta & Beef Strips

{4 servings}

500g Pasta, any type {I used Screw Noodles}
500g Lean Beef Strips
2 TB Olive Oil
Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 Large Onion, chopped
250g Mushrooms, sliced
1 t Dijon Mustard
1 t Ginger, crushed
2 TB Dry Red Wine
1 cup Fresh Cream  {whipping cream/heavy cream}
1 1/2 cups Feta Cheese, crumbled  {divided}
Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
Parsley, to garnish  - fresh or dried

1.) Cook the Pasta as per the instructions on the packet.
2.) Meanwhile, fry the Beef Strips in the Olive Oil, using a large pan, over medium heat until done, season to taste - remove from pan and keep warm.
3.) Using the same pan, saute the Onion & Mushrooms until soft - add the Mustard, Ginger and Red wine, stir-fry for 1 minute - add the Fresh Cream and heat through - add 1 cup of the Feta Cheese - simmer just long enough until the Feta has melted - if needed, season with Salt & Pepper.

TO SERVE: Place cooked Pasta on a serving dish, top with Beef Strips followed by the Feta Sauce - end with the remaining 1/2 cup crumbled Feta Cheese and Parsley.



Hope you enjoy this quick and delicious pasta dish!
